AMC Planning The Walking Dead Movie, Anna Shinoda To Write Script


image

After the finale of The Walking Dead’s third season yesterday, Robert Kirkman has told MTV that a movie of the successful series is being prepared now. The movie will be a prequel to the third season and tell the story of the Governor’s life after the zombie apocalypse (as told in Kirkman’s novel “The Walking Dead”).

In a surprising move, Paramount Pictures has hired up and coming Young Adult novelist Anna Shinoda to write the script of the movie.
Shinoda spilled the beans in a blog post shortly after Kirkman’s announcement:
“I’m very excited to take on this challenge and I want to thank Robert for trusting me with this.”
Insiders claim that Shinoda has ordered a special PG rated version of the series, because she is allergic to violent images.

According to AMC, they are currently talking to different directors, such as Quentin Tarantino, Martin Scorsese and Michael Bay, but a final decision has yet to be made.

Olympiacos becomes the European Champion of 2011-2012! (Final 4 2012 Tribute)


How can I start writing this post with so many emotions overwhelming me? I’ll try to remain as calm as I can. Impossible, since my team, Olympiacos, is the reigning European Champion after a crazy final against the powerful CSKA Moscow!

Let’s start from Friday, though. On Friday, Istanbul of Turkey welcomed thousands of Euroleague Basketball fans along with the best four teams of the season: Regal FC Barcelona, Olympiacos, Panathinaikos and CSKA Moscow! That was the day of the 2 semifinals, which would eventually determine the 2 teams that’d advance to the final!

Semifinal 1 – CSKA Moscow vs. Panathinaikos Athens

CSKA faced last season’s Euroleague champions in the first semifinal and won 66-64 after a heart-breaking 4th quarter! Panathinaikos, despite the team’s overexertion, didn’t manage to win since CSKA got a little bit luckier in the last minute of the game.

With only 9 seconds remaining, Teodosic of CSKA missed 2 crusial free throws and Panathinaikos’ coach called out for a time-out and complained to the referees for ball travelling by Siskauskas. The referrees didn’t agree with Pana’s coach and Diamantidis had the ball in his hands for one last trial to take the game to overtime. He didn’t pass the ball on time, deja vu much from their first game vs. Maccabi, in Tel Aviv, in the playoffs.

CSKA won and once again confirmed that they were made to win, even if Panathinaikos fought until the end.

Semifinal 2 – Olympiacos Piraeus vs. Regal FC Barcelona

This year’s Euroleague miracle, Olympiacos, beats Regal FC Barcelona on Friday’s night game 68-64, breaking Blaugranas’ hearts. Olympiacos was in control in most parts of the game, never allowing Barcelona to break their spell.

As always, Olympiacos was in charge in the first half, taking advantage of Barcelona’s initial anxiety. With some great 3 point shots and passion, they made the game look ideal. However, Barcelona ruled in offensive rebounds, something that deprived Olympiacos from extra possessions, aka additional points. It’s not over until it’s over, they say. Olympiacos grabbed almost every offensive rebound in the last quarter and this was a vast contributor to their win. The Reds got in the game entitled as the ‘outsider team’ and proved everyone wrong, with those young players showing their burning passion to one of the most experienced teams of Europe.

3rd place game – Panathinaikos vs. Regal FC Barcelona

After shocking losses for both teams, The Blaugranas faced The Greens in the 3rd place game in which the Spanish team won, 74-69. Panathinaikos showed no real passion for that game, bearing in mind the tough loss over CSKA. (Opinion: Every game is a new one, how can the coach and the players declare they have no motivation before the game begins? This is not the ex European Champions’ attitude towards a legendary team like Barcelona!)

The Greens had their fans’ support even in the 3rd place game, creating a great atmosphere before the final! Panathinaikos’ shining star in the game was once again Dimitris Diamantidis, who ended the game with 17 points. No particular interest, however, since Jasikevicius (Pana) and Navarro (Barca) didn’t play. It was a mediocre game and it seemed that both teams were disappointed from Friday’s games.

The Final – CSKA Moscow vs. Olympiacos Piraeus

This final was more than just crazy. It was insane. Continue reading Olympiacos becomes the European Champion of 2011-2012! (Final 4 2012 Tribute)

Five Charged in China After Teen Sells Kidney for iPhone and iPad


Tech

Camping overnight at the Apple store looks pretty tame after this case. Five people in southern China have been charged for taking a 17-year-old boy’s kidney in exchange for an iPad and an iPhone.

According to Reuters, one of the defendants received $35,000 for arranging the transplant for an unknown client. He split that money with a surgeon and three other defendants.

The boy, identified only by his surname Wang, confessed to selling his kidney after his mom asked him where his new Apple products came from. Prosecutors from Chenzhou, in the Hunan province, say that he now suffers from renal deficiency.

The worst part? Wang got a terrible deal. In China, iPhones start at 3,988 yuan ($633) and iPads 2,988 yuan ($474). Now, I’m no professor of economics, but that comes out to a combined…

Suicide in the heart of Athens!


You never know what happens in life and that’s normal. However, being present in a suicide is by no stretch of the imagination.

A 65-year old man was walking in Syntagma Square, opposite the Greek Parliament and he decided to put an end to his life. It was 9 A.M. and the square was crowded as normal but no one was able to stop him. They all froze when they heard the shot and saw the man’s dead body fall to the ground.

Such shocking news to hear and still no one can believe it. This old man decided to commit suicide in front of everyone, apparently to get off a difficult financial situation. The suicide range has been tremendously increased the last couple of years in Greece, mostly because people are in huge debts and can’t handle it any more.

It’s sad how a historic and legendary nation had been forced to submit to Europe’s interests and it’s even more sad that people are not aware at all that many of their fellow citizens go through some tough times and so they can’t help them out.
